"Our Gem this month was born and raised in Clermont," announced Kalena Meyers, chair of the chamber's Community Relations Committee. "In fact our Gem was born in the old South Lake Hospital just down the street, attended Clermont Elementary School, Clermont Junior High and graduated from Clermont High School."
After high school Morehouse started her career as a receptionist at a local school in Howey in the Hills and worked her way into the accounting and payroll department. She then worked in accounting and in a variety of financial related positions through the years until taking her current position at Doctor's Weight Control where she serves as the CFO at Doctors Weight Control.
She has been married for 17 years and has 2 children and 2 dogs.
"Our gem has a passion for animals and children and always fights for the underdog," said Meyers. She volunteers with many organizations including Back to School Is Cool, the American Legion Auxiliary where she serves as Girl's State Coordinator and Chaplin, General Federation of Women's Clubs, the South Lake Jr. Woman's Club, and is on the advisory board of Z88.3 radio.
Morehouse joins the ranks of the past Gems who have made a difference in the South Lake community.
